Amoeba Music To Relocate And Plans To Acquire Dispensary License

HOLLYWOOD (CBSLA) — Popular music store Amoeba Music will be demolished and replaced with an apartment complex, but the store plans to reopen nearby with new additions to their merchandise.

According to the LA Times, Los Angeles City Council voted Tuesday to approve zoning that that will allow the development of a 26-story complex at the corner of Sunset and Cahuenga Boulevard where Amoeba Music is currently located.

The building, which opened as the music store in 2001, was sold to developer GPI Companies in 2015 for $34 million.

“Amoeba has every intention of remaining in L.A.,” Amoeba’s Jim Henderson told The Times in 2017. “Rest assured, we are NOT closing, but we are now in a position where we may have to change locations in the coming years.”

According to Variety, Amoeba Music’s co-owner, Marc Weinstein said in 2018 that Amoeba’s L.A. store will move to a new location “within blocks” of its current spot on 6400 Sunset Boulevard.

Alongside the move, Amoeba has announced plans to acquire a dispensary license at the new location, wherever that may be.
